The sirloin roast is cut from the beef just in front of the hind legs. These cuts are not as tender as the loin and while a sirloin roast can be roasted in the oven, the roast will benefit from the braising method of cooking. Braising is also an excellent way to cook a frozen sirloin roast, as the added moisture will keep the roast from drying out as it cooks.
